Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) to Host Roundtable on "Futurization" of Swaps
Commodity Futures Trading Commission staff will host a public roundtable to discuss the “futurization” of swaps. The roundtable will consist of four panels, which will address: (1) general industry views and concerns regarding the conversion of swaps to futures in each asset class; (2) clearing and different margin requirements for swaps and futures; (3) transaction-related matters including appropriate block rules for swaps and futures; and (4) the effect of the conversion of swaps to futures on end-users.
The roundtable will be held at CFTC headquarters in Washington, D.C. on January 31, and will be open to the public. A live audio feed will also be available for anyone not in attendance. Interested persons may submit comments to the CFTC prior to the conclusion of the roundtable.
